change - from Babo in the Sonoran Desert to
snow-covered Round Hill. Gotta love those
aspen; whether they're elk-scarred or not!

Does anybody have a figure as to how many elk
are living (population-wise) in central Colorado? Nice shot of these trees, Sarah !!

So ... Fairplay is just to the east of Leadville, separated by Mount Sherman?
(Geez - I just learned something new!)

Yes, it is quite a change to come back to snowy Colorado after skipping through the desert near Tucson.

I have no idea how many elk are in Colorado but, with no natural preditors left, there are TOO many, that's for sure.

Yes, as the crow flies Fairplay and Leadville are very close. However, to get from one town to the other involves either a) roundabout ways and long drives or b) a long drive on a 4x4 road (over Westin Pass), summer only.
